(Adelmo Fornaciari)
[1955-…], Roncocesi, Emilia-Romagna, Italy


Adelmo Fornaciari, more commonly known by his stage name Zucchero Fornaciari or simply Zucchero, is an Italian singer-songwriter and musician.

Zucchero’s stage name is the Italian word for sugar, as his elementary teacher used to call him.

Zucchero’s music is largely inspired by gospel, soul, blues and rock music, and alternates between Italian ballads and more rhythmic R&B-boogie-like pieces. Zucchero is credited as the “father of the Italian blues”, introducing the blues music on the big stage in Italy. He is one of the few European blues artists who still enjoy great international success.

In his career, spanning more than three decades, Fornaciari has sold over 50 million records around the world, and internationally his most successful singles are ” Diamante “, ” Il Volo/My Love “, ” Baila (Sexy Thing)/Baila Morena “, and the duet ” Senza una donna (Without a Woman) ” with Paul Young. He has achieved numerous awards, including four Festivalbar, six Wind Music Awards, two World Music Awards (1993, 1996), six IFPI Europe Platinum Awards, and a Grammy Award nomination.

Zucchero collaborated and performed with many famous artists, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Brian May (Queen), Miles Davis, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Sting, Bono (U2), Paul Young, Peter Gabriel, Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli among others.
